Play Pong is an interactive installation at New Media Discipline academic showcase at 30th Convocation of National Institute of Design, India.
This installation explores the different possibilities of input device for controlling the movement of the paddle for hitting the ball in the pong game. We have used two different modes of input, which includes a sensor embedded wired band and a wireless band.
The wired band is embedded with an accelerometer for sensing the amount of tilt which guides the movement of the paddle.
In case of the wireless band, we used computer-vision library for detecting the movement, which is translated into the input signal for controlling the movement of the paddle.
